It seems that only the left is allowed to reveal hypocrisy. When Christians do so, the state is there again to step in and cry foul. This follows the narrative I have been pointing to for a month. The government and the sodomite community says we are to agree, or else. This is happening in the case of an evangelist from Arizona and a baker in Florida.
The Christian Post has reported:
Arizona Internet Evangelist Joshua Feuerstein could be facing felony charges after posting a YouTube video recording of a conversation he had with a Florida baker where he asked if she could make him a sheet cake displaying the words “We do not support gay marriage.”
I want to point out that Feuerstein is not facing charges for the request, at least not yet. The issue is that he did not know that his recording of the baker without her permission is illegal in Florida. I wonder how that works since he is not in Florida. But I digress. The problem that Feuerstein faces is that he also published the recording on YouTube.
Breitbart reports that Haller is considering taking Feuerstein to court because he never got her permission to publish their conversation. The Orlando Sentinel was told by a Sarasota-based lawyer that recording conversations without consent is a third-degree felony in the state of Florida and punishable by up to five years in prison.
But, the purpose for the recording was to point to a double standard. We all know that this double standard exists. Joshua is guilty of trying to reveal this hypocrisy.
The Christian Post said:
On April 1, Feuerstein called Cut the Cake bakery in Longwood, Florida, and asked owner Sharon Haller if she would make a cake and include the words “We do not support gay marriage.” Haller initially thought the phone call was a prank. She then refused to make the cake saying, “We do not do that, sorry.” She then quickly hung up the phone.
His point is easy to see.
“It obviously violates her principles, so she doesn’t feel like she should be forced to make the cake. And yet, there is all of this hoopla because Christian bakeries think that they shouldn’t be forced,” he explained. “We’re getting to the place in America now where Christians are not allowed any form of freedom of speech.”
Haller has since contacted her local news and the FBI. She, like most people, has exaggerated the situation. She, apparently seeking to make Feuerstein’s motives hateful, misquoted him on the news.
“He gave credit card information and he said he wants written on the cake, ‘I hate gays,'” Haller is quoted as saying to the media outlet.
The Post also reports:
Breitbart also reports that Haller has inquired with the FBI as to whether Feuerstein can be charged with a hate crime.
This means that there is a chance that there would be federal charges brought against Joshua. Here would be the double standard. Joshua is said to commit a crime for the statement; “we do not support gay marriage.” But Christian bakers are not allowed to refuse to bake a cake for sodomite unions. The gags are coming. It will not be long before you will not be allowed to express your beliefs concerning sodomy. They have promised they would silence us and they are attempting to do it.
“At a later stage of the media campaign for gay rights — long after other gay ads have become commonplace — it will be time to get tough with remaining opponents. To be blunt, they must be vilified. ….Our goal here is twofold. First, we seek to replace the mainstream’s self-righteous pride about its homophobia with shame and guilt. Second, we intend to make the antigays look so nasty that average Americans will want to dissociate themselves from such types.”
Editor's Note: Under Arizona law, one can record any conversation as long as at least one party of the conversation knows about it. The Christian, in this instance, knew about the recording since he was performing it and was in Arizona. Therefore, there is no violation of law.Don't forget to Like Freedom Outpost on Facebook, Google Plus, & Twitter. You can also get Freedom Outpost delivered to your Amazon Kindle device here.
